Atlanta United defeated DC United 1-0 on Saturday night. This was the fourth goal that Atlanta has scored after the 90th minute, this season. It was a very chippy game as 32 fouls were committed in the game. DC United had ten corner kicks but struggled to test Brad Guzan. Brad Guzan made two big saves both on Nigel Robertha and Chris Durkin. Bill Hamid was forced into a big save on Matheus Rosseto, right before halftime. Jackson Conway scuffed a great chance in the 78th minute. The match was relatively even, but Atlanta was able to find a winner via Marcelino Moreno.

This result moves Atlanta up to 3rd in the Eastern Conference. Their next result will be an important match at Charlotte FC. Atlanta won 2-1 the last time that those two sides played. Luiz Araujo might be back for this match, but he is still nursing a hamstring injury. For DC United, they will be hosting in-form Austin FC. Micheal Estrada will likely be returning for their side after helping Ecuador qualify for the World Cup.
